Office Policies


 

Billing

Thank you for choosing Elk Grove Dermatology, S.C. as your healthcare provider. We are committed to your treatment being successful. Your clear understanding of our financial policies is important to our professional relationship.

We make every effort to decrease the cost of your medical care. Our office accepts Medicare Assignment, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Blue Choice PPO, Ascension Smart Health and United Healthcare PPO.  If you have insurance other than the plans listed we require that you pay for your visit at the time of service. We can provide you all the information you need to submit the claim to your insurance company for reimbursement if you choose to do so. Co-payments are collected at the completion of your visit and estimates are provided at the patient's request for further services that may be recommended. 

We strive to work with patients with balances that may remain after the insurance has processed charges. If you fail to make monthly payments on a balance, your account will be forwarded to collections after two statements have been generated.
